1 Samuel 30:6 – David was greatly distressed because the men were talking of stoning him; each one was bitter in spirit because of his sons and daughters. But David found strength in the Lord his God. In this study we will examine the King as a case study of how God is a never-depleting source of strength for us – in good times and in bad.
1 Samuel 17:37 – “The LORD who delivered me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.” Saul said to David, “Go, and the LORD be with you.” In this study, we will compare the Spiritual Giants to the Physical Giants using the case study of small and young David defeating the giant Goliath so easily.
1 Samuel 16:7 – But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” In this study, through the example of Eliab, we will examine the age-old topic about the outside versus the inside, and how God sees these things.
1 Samuel 12:23 – Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the LORD by ceasing to pray for you, and I will instruct you in the good and the right way. In this study we will examine how Samuel considered not praying for his people unceasingly to be a sin, and what we can learn from that.
1 Samuel 15:22 – Does the Lord delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the voice of the Lord? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams. In this study, we will examine the obedience that the Lord delights in.
